Consequences? Not when I'm president!

This past week the hopeful presidential candidate, B. Hussein Obama (drunk on the forthcoming power due him by occupying the White House) with as much sincerity as he could muster said,

"Look, I got two daughters—9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby."

It is with horror that I read this quote and realized that he was serious, and that the main stream media did not expel him from the stage. Has our society degenerated so completely that a person running for the highest office in the land can call a “mother carrying the miracle of life” punishment and get away with it?!?!?!? I love my country, and I hope we make a major turn, but with situations like this, my hope is waning. He was insinuating that he would prefer to kill the victim for the mistake of his daughter.

Children are not being taught values and morals if their natural consequences are removed. They are simply being taught that they are above the law.

Here are some potential extracts from letters to the new president, based on his new platform:

“I took on too much debt in an attempt to earn windfall profits. But the value of the dollar has sunk, and I can no longer cover my outgoing cash flow. Shouldn’t I still be allowed to stay in business instead of being punished with bankruptcy and solvency?” – CEO of large bank

“My parents brought me up right, but I’ve recently borrowed too much money for my house, and I can no longer afford the payments because my dollar doesn’t buy as much as it once did. To keep 3 new cars in the garage and child support payments to 2 ex-wives, I am on the verge of losing my home. As an American, should I be punished to live like a commoner in spite of my rash choices?” –Harry Typical

“I’ve lost everything. My career, my dignity, my family. President Obama, can you please use your executive authority to restore my life as an American citizen. I should not be punished by losing everything simply for my decade-long involvement with a prostitution ring” – Former NY governor

“Dear B. Hussein Obama, Can you please do something about my waistline? I’ve eaten too many cookies and Lays Potato Chips, and I haven’t found enough time to exercise. Can you keep me from being punished with a large gut?” – Darla Typical-No-Longer

“My dad also taught me good values and morals. One time, only one time I was focused more on my cell phone conversation than my driving, and I ran a red light. Should I still be punished with maxofacial reconstruction and six months in rehab learning to walk again?” – Johnny Teen



UPDATE: This week, the terrorist group, Hamas, has endorsed B. Hussein Obama for president. This follows a stellar week for the presidential hopeful after he received an endorsement from another terrorist group...the Pittsburgh Steelers.

'Tis a shame where our nation has come and disconcerting where it is going. Thank God for the hope of His coming kingdom.

Excellent requests of the nanny state.

You forgot:
"Help! I'm a successful single Tech Consultant, but I can't maintain my mortgage and 2 car payments and at the same time make the child support payments for my 3 out-of-wedlock children of different mothers.
I need some kind of subsidy to maintain my lifestle!
I shouldn't be punsished along with these women!"

Keep up the great writing!

steve says-you are majoring on the minor!! the issue is not punishment or consequences; the real issue is that he is open and serious about killing the innocent unborn child in the womb

steve adds - a better example would be that 'my wife (or child or friend) is seriously ill, or has had an accident, and i do not want the consequences or the trouble of long term care - i will terminate them to make room for a better lifestyle

Steve,

I struggled with how to word my utter disdain for Obama's comment. You're right. The evil of his comment was the advocation of genocide within his own family. He actually preferred killing his own grandchild to enjoying "grandparenthood." You caught the very thing with which I struggled to word. Obviously, I have work to do on communicating my true feelings.

The murder of one's own children in the name of convenience is the most heinous crime I can imagine.

Perhaps, I should have made two blog entries to segregate the evil/consequence-flaw of his comment.

Jon,

But we're Americans! We deserve subsidies no matter how poorly we have chosen! The government should provide for all of our needs, and the rich and oil companies should pay for it.

I was challenged last week by a very wise person to do less picketing and boycotting and MORE serving and loving. What I mean is that in order for us to save lives (spiritually and physically), as a church we need to get "out there" in the messed up culture that we are set squarely in the middle of and make a differnce in a "life on life" kind of way. I haven't figured out exactly how to do it, but I'm pretty sure Jesus is the model we ought to look at....
